On March 29, 2021, the U.S. Center for Disease Control once again extended its eviction moratorium through June 30, 2021. The moratorium was set to expire on March 31.
Residential evictions for the nonpayment of rent or holdover of a tenant cannot commence until July 1, 2021. However, evictions for the breach of other provisions of a lease may be instituted. Although residential evictions are halted until July, their prohibition does not suspend the obligation to pay rent/mortgages. Furthermore, a tenant must take affirmative steps to be protected by the moratorium.
It can be extremely difficult to navigate the various emergency rules instituted during the global pandemic.
